Thank you for taking the time to replay mate,

I havent changed anything manualy in the BIOS and also i do not know what speed my RAM is running at could you please tell me how i can check this, thanks!

The file stess.txt dosent specificly tell you what the problem was it just gives you a vague reveiw of what can go wrong, ill see if i can attach it here to show you what i mean!

Again thanks for replying mate, these mobo is very close to going back if i cant get this sorted soon.

You're right. Stress.txt is useless. But at least now we know you have a hardware problem.

A few ways to check the memory speed.
  • When you first boot your computer the amount of RAM and speed may show on the first boot screen that comes on the display. You can use the PAUSE key to freeze the screen to read it.
  • Or Enter the BIOS (that first boot screen will tell you what key to press to do this) and navigate to the tab that does overclocking or tweaking and look at the settings. Don't change anything and "Exit without Saving Changes" on the exit Tab after you've got all your info.

If you made no changes and this is a new build that you assembled then I bet the RAM is set at 1066 by default. That's OK for now, and eliminates any problems that may have been caused by changing the multiplier. Just leave it alone until you get this current problem sorted.

Run Memtest. Lets see if the RAM is good.

Here is my RAM readings from CPU-Z. Going to run memtest tonight ill post back the results tomorrow. I have removed the RAM and booted up one at a time already and the error persisted however.

Ok i just completed 2:30 running memtest. It completeled two cycles in which it passed both with no errors. I am unable to leave it running over night as the computer is in the bedroom and GF dosent want it on haha.

Supose this rules out memory errors then?

My PSU is 650w ATX PSU although i know nothing else about it.

Prime 95 says you got a problem.
Did you check for cooling issues?
Other than that it could be power supply or motherboard.

I have tried EVERYTHING and i mean everything. I seriously just F**king give up on this now.

PSU voltages after closer looking where fine 1.1-1.2 when computer is under stress. From what i can tell while reading on net this is fine.

Temps do go fairly high 70+ when running prime95 however while in game it never exceeded 65 and STILL crashed. This still might be it however i am pritty sure that sort of temp is not enough to cause it to crash over and over. Right now as i am typing this the 4 cores are between 31-34. :/

I have booted up and tried each RAM stick one at a time to still get the error. Ran memtest all be it for only 2:30 mins but still no errors.

I have completely removed all traces of graphics card drivers from my system and updated using the newest ones time and time again.

My BIOS was updated yeserday from 2.00 to 2.20 version which came out 2 days ago!

My GPU is brand new, not only is it brand new it dosent overheat and still gives me the error. Also i have tried my nvidia 9800 gtx+ which also gave me the error.

All the parts within the computer are fine, nothing is lose everything is in correct place. Everything is bloody BRAND NEW for crying out loud.

Prime95 did however say i have some sort of hardware error so this computer is going back on Sat.



However all that being said and rant over i must thank you guys here on this fourms for helping me and advising me on what to do. If you still do have any ideas i have a day and a half to try it because i seriously would prefare not to wait on getting this back.

Thanks in advance, Kloral.

Might want to pop the side panel off and make note of the make and model of it. not all power supplies are created equal and a poor quality 650W PSU isn't as good or reliable as a good quality 400-450W PSU. Think of it as the heart of the system, and if it is the weakest link, then nothing else can or will run properly.

Hey mate thanks for your advice, here are the things written on the side of my PSU.

AC INPUNT: 230VAC 10A 50-60 HZ MODEL: 650 UB.

DC OUTPUT +3.3v / +5v / +12v1 / +12v2 / -12v / +5vsb
MAX 28a / 3va / 20a / 19a / 0.3a / 25a

650w

Mmmm.
That is this unit: CiT 650W Power Supply Unit with PSU and Dual 12V Rails - Black Edition: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
And it is a prime suspect.

Those are marginal amperage ratings if they were honest and the power supply was producing the true maximum amount of current (even the good ones only do about 95% of the rated amperage in bench tests).

I recall reading that the 5770 class GPUs need 18a on the 12v to run at max.

EDIT: and you're running 8 Gigs of RAM which use a lot of juice.
